I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.
I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring!
Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)
We went away at the weekend and I finally got to give the Anniversary album to my in-laws! They really loved it and I was so happy! It made all the hard work worth while. My mother-in-law spent about an hour bawling her eyes out and laughing in equal measure when looking through it, I wish I had my camera there to take photo's of her reaction.
We had the anniversary party on Saturday evening and a VERY good time was had by everyone. Ben and Charlotte looked adorable! Ben had a lovely linen suit on and Charlotte looked like a little princess in her party dress. My sister-in-law Cath took about 100 photo's to prove it. She is going to get them e-mailed to me at some point, there is a decidedly dodgy one of me near the end of the evening lol. I certainly slept all night, I think I passed out actually!!! I will put some piccies up when I get them.
On Sunday we went to visit hubby's Mum and Dad before they flew back to their house in Spain and spent some time chatting with the family before going to Pizza Hut and driving back home. As much as we had a great weekend, I couldn't wait to get home and get the kids into bed so that I could just veg out on the settee. I felt exhausted!
I still feel very tired now, I can't seem to recover.
I managed to get most of my CJ done. It needs to be posted next Monday but due to the anniversary album taking up all of my time I was beginning to think I would never get it done. Anyway, I am nearly there now and very pleased with how it is looking. What do you think?
